Ana + Betânia are Ana Cruz and Maria de Betânia (b. 1983). Currently based in Caldas da Rainha, they are a Portuguese duo who started working together on sculptural ceramics in 2012.
The artists’ body of work is often influenced by Portuguese popular ceramics, but their concepts and subjects are far from traditional. Ana + Betânia collaborate in every single step along their creative process, from the first brainstorming (which involve theoretical research and lots of sketches) to the studio work and the planning of an exhibition.
